Max Verstappen starts on pole in the first of this season's sprint races at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
In a qualifying session on Friday afternoon at Imola that was hit by five red flags and rain, the reigning F1 champion emerged on top ahead of title leader in Ferrari's Charles Leclerc.
Although the Ferrari driver was able to get the jump on his rival at the start of Saturday's sprint, Verstappen executed a textbook pass using DRS at the start of the penultimate lap to secure his position at the front of the grid for the grand prix itself.
For Mercedes, the weekend has been one to forget after failing to get a car into the top-10 shoot-out for the first time since the 2012 Japanese Grand Prix, leaving George Russell and Lewis Hamilton in 11th and 13th on the grid.
Russell retained his position in the sprint but Hamilton dropped to 14th leading him to claim his title chances are over.
Check out the times below and how to watch the rest of the weekend's events.

GPFans' F1 EMILIA ROMAGNA GP PREDICTION
It is impossible to look past Ferrari as F1 visits Italy for the first time this year, with Leclerc clearly the favourite to succeed.
Verstappen will be fired up to make up lost ground after scoring points just once this year through his race win in Saudi Arabia, but whilst his talent is beyond doubt, there remain serious questions over the RB18.
Sprint throws in an additional curveball to spice up the action with greater points on offer this term than last year. After getting his elbows out against Lewis Hamilton last year, Verstappen may strike the same aggressive tone with Leclerc this time around.
A Ferrari win would no doubt be the most popular result in the grandstands.
